Husband, myself and our 10 month old enjoyed a lovely early dinner here yesterday. Pad Thai & Red Curry were YUM, accompanied by some Thai beer. Anne was a very lovely host, couldn't have been nicer. Will certainly be back =)

The room was very basic, but we were welcomed with a bottle of cold sparkling wine in our room which was a nice touch especially after a long drive. The room was clean, albeit tired and as we were out most of the day, the basic amenities didn't worry us as we only needed a place to sleep. I think...

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days at The Central Hotel. Bedroom lovely & comfortable and meals very good. Our bathroom disappointing with having no sink stopper plus the 'Hot' top of tap was missing. Over & above that though, we were really happy with everything else. The staff were all lovely & very helpful.

Our one night stay was €139 which included breakfast! Staff were lovely upon arrival however the decor of the hotel is very out of date, even the corridors are borderline shabby! There was serious fumes on the stair case coming from the pool direction so instantly I was not going to step foot in the pool. Our room was very...

Received a warm welcome and chef was excellent and explained the menu which was good value. Good variety and great service. Excellent meal and very fresh beautifully presented chef even drizzled the gravy on top of food and took pride in his work. Nice to see that. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will return when in the area.
